Signature doesn't say if auto tranny or not but I recently had problems with the tranny pump (cross leak) and torque converter locking up. Causes the truck to act like a manual tranny when you forget to depress the clutch when you stop. mine did it in both forward and reverse gear. Just a shot. Bet someone will be along soon that can help. Good luck.

My truck gets a low idle while im idling sometimes when I shift into reverse I believe that it is in the low idle and my truck is hard to stop and if i stop it too fast it stalls. its like going really fast down a hill and locking the tires stalls mine sometimes. which I believe is the tq converter

Does yours do this very often? My 01 did it ocassionally and then it became a regular occurance. When it had 60 K miles on it ford replaced the CPS and the problem went away. Then at 122K miles it started doing it again so I took it in and got the CPS replaced on recall. That seemed to fix it for about two months and then it just did it again tonight. The first time at 60K I know the CPS fixed the problem. It never did it for the next 62K miles. This time I am wondering if it is the T converter or tranny. Whats the chance the CPS they gave me on the recall has a problem after two months??
